Join The Army: Free Plastic Surgery!

The U.S. Military Offers Free Plastic Surgery (nips, tucks, lipo, implants et al.)

CBS 4 Boston Reports...


Nips and tucks are available for any active duty soldier and except for the cost of implants, they’re free of charge.

Recruiter: “I think the reason they came out with that is we’re trying to get a lot of different types of incentives. It’s hard to get people to join.”

Sarah, Undercover recruit: “He explained you can get liposuction, breast implants and everything in between.”

So while some are risking their lives on the front lines, others are whittling away their waste lines and ridding themselves of wrinkles.

Cosmetic surgery is a hot topic on this military website. Type in tummy tuck and you’ll find discussions about breast implants, tucks and lipo.

In 2003, there were 384 liposuctions, 288 tummy tucks, 261 breast augmentations, 135 facelifts and 69 nose jobs performed in U.S. military hospitals.

Using current rates, it’s a tab of almost two million taxpayer dollars!
